Today, the topic is over SKINCARE!
I'll be discussing the MOST IMPORTANT and cheapest beauty product out there that everyone (men, women, and young teens) should be using!
Let's get started...
Taking care of my skin has always been a huge priority for me - & by that, I don't mean just taking off my makeup at the end of the day with a makeup wipe. I do the entire morning/night time routine with all my favorite skin care products - but the most important step in the world to me: SUNSCREEN.
Every. Single. Day. No. Matter. What.
That's right, Sunscreen.
We hear it all the time. How important it is for us. What it can help avoid. But how many of us really take the time to put it on every morning?
I've made it a habit. An everyday habit. I'll leave my helpful tip at the end of this post that helps remind me to put it on every morning!
Before, I was definitely anti-sunscreen at the beach and in my daily life. Now that I've gotten older, I really take into consideration caring for my skin. Like I've mentioned earlier, a morning/night time routine has always been huge for me since high school (even in middle school!) But really researching about sunscreen has opened up my eyes to the bigger picture.
Here are some reasons why sunscreen is important:
Skin Cancer: Sunscreen has been proven to help decrease the development of skin cancer. Each year more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the US, over 90 percent of which are caused by the sun's ultraviolet rays.
Aging: Sunscreen can help prevent wrinkled and premature aging skin.
Here's a little proof...

This has been my most favorite sunscreen/moisturizer! Whether I'm out running errands with my husband, dinner with my girls, Starbucks with my bff, movie night, or doing some shopping: I'm wearing my sunscreen! It's become such a habit, that I'll wear it every morning/day even if I end up staying home and my plans for the day are just to relax and take my dog out for a long run.
- I leave my sunscreen near my toothbrush. That way, every morning I'm brushing my teeth, I'm reminded to not forget to put some on! I don't just put some on my face. My neck, chest, and arms are all covered as well. Did you know your neck is one of the top body parts wrinkles are formed as well? It's also the least body part we tend to forget about. So, don't forget the neck!
